Family Emergency

Dear Friends,    I probably won’t be posting for  a while, at least this week.  My darling 93-year old Mom (Anna) suffered a bad fall yesterday (Memorial Day) which resulted in 6 broken ribs and a very tiny tear in her heart.  Fortunately the tear was not a big as originally thought, and she is resting comfortably in the ICU.  These next 36 hours are critical to my Mom’s mortality, but we are hopeful that the tear will gently heal itself.  We’re not quite out of the woods yet, but your prayers and thoughts will be greatly appreciated these next few days.  Thank you for understanding, Therese

  2. Thank You, Diana, She rested a lot yesterday, will be in ICU for at least 1 more day, then, if all is well, a month and a half of physical therapy to heal the ribs. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.

  3. Therese, I’ve only just come across your blog (as a long time Spock fan), but I’ve been in a similar stressful situation with my own dear mum and just wanted to wish you both all the best and hope she’s well soon.
